Happy Father's Day!

Happy Father's Day today to my sweet husband Ben. It seems like just yesterday he was 15 and we just met and I drove him to his JV baseball banquet. Nina just posted this pic on Facebook to remind us of that night long ago.

Today we are celebrating him as a father! He is the best dad. Kinley just lights up when he is around. He works so hard to make sure we have everything we need as a family. He is a full-time worker, student, dad and husband. I could not ask for anything more. He is still the same boy I fell in love with over 10 years ago but, every year he turns out to be more amazing that I ever dreamed of. He makes me laugh so hard and dreams bigger than I ever would. He is the rock of our little family and I am so thankful for Kinley to have such an incredible Daddy! Happy Father's Day Ben!

I know Ben learned alot about being a great dad from his great dad! Gary..or Pops..is such a great grandpa too! Kinley always has a great time with Pops. He always checks up on her and wants to hear what she has learned. He loves puppies and water about as much as Kinley so they always have a great time together when the doggies are around or when we are on the beach or at the lake!

And of course, like Kinley, I know what is like to have a sweet daddy be the light of your life. I admire my daddy so much and am so thankful for the loving, faithful example he has always been throughout my life. Kinley just adores her "Boss" and always wants to hug his neck. Even though he is in Africa on a Missions Trip right now and probably wont see this post...I just wanted to say how much I love him and how proud I am of him. We miss you Dad and wish you a Happy Father's Day too!
